The Garden Club of Monaco, chaired by HRH the Princess of Hanover, is holding the 53rd International Bouquet Competition, on October 15 and 16 in the Riva Tunnel on Port Hercule.

Participants from all over Europe come to compete in imagination to develop floral compositions, and true works of art are expected for this competition, the organisers say.

‘Colour in fashion’ will be the general theme this year. Six categories will be open to all (amateurs and professionals) plus free style.

A special Princess Grace of Monaco Prize will honour the Garden Club’s founder.

The exhibition is open to the public on Saturday October 15 from 18:00 to 20:30 and on Sunday October 16 from 09:30 to 18:00.

On Sunday at 14.30, Kevin Billard, florist and decorator at the Prince’s Palace, will lead a floral demonstration on the theme of fashion and will produce two floral decorations. The first will be “the art of the table inspired by Dolce & Gabanna” and the second, “an exceptional bouquet inspired by the world of Thierry Mugler”.
